In this article, Australian National Construction Major Project Review reflects on REMONDIS’s role in meeting ambitious waste diversion targets for Ovingham Level Crossing Removal Project
REMONDIS Wingfield Resource Recovery Facility provided strategic, logistical and processing services to achieve the project’s ambitious 90% recycling rate
Dry waste was processed into PEF and salvaged materials were recycled or recovered
REMONDIS has played a key role in South Australia’s Ovingham Level Crossing Removal Project – a $231 million project jointly funded by the Australian and South Australian governments. The project is being delivered by the South Australian Department for Infrastructure and Transport in an Alliance with McConnell Dowell, Mott MacDonald and Arup.
REMONDIS Australia was engaged by Alliance partner McConnell Dowell to manage waste to support the project in meeting its environmental waste diversion targets on the Ovingham Level Crossing Removal Project. The target recycling rate for this project was a minimum of 90%.
“Our job was to implement strategies that would transform waste into secondary raw materials to create new sources of energy,” said Construction Segment Manager, David Muncaster.
The waste management plan encompassed two areas – the office area for organic, general and paper & cardboard waste, and the construction site which had specific bins for concrete, steel, timber and general waste.
REMONDIS conducted education sessions for all workers onsite so they could gain an understanding of the different bins and what was recycled in each.
“The dry waste – timber, metals, plastics, cardboard and paper – were taken to an alternative fuel company to be converted into a high calorific and recyclable energy source called Process Engineered Fuel (PEF), a renewable energy substitute for coal and gas in high combustion facilities such as Adelaide Brighton Cement,” said David.
All salvaged materials are recycled or recovered. Where possible, inert fractions are further processed for resupply to the civil construction market.
These recovered materials are used in the production of road bases, synthetic sport fields and bike tracks.
“By recovering both the combustible and non-combustible materials found in the dry waste, we recycle or re-use 95% of all incoming materials that would otherwise be sent to landfill,” said David. “That’s the highest diversion rate possible in Australia.”
With over 1,100 employees and 38 business locations in Australia, REMONDIS Australia serves more than 24,000 commercial, industrial and municipal customers and their communities. REMONDIS provides full service, end-to-end waste collection, treatment, resource recovery and management solutions right across the country.
“We believe we can achieve a more sustainable future in which waste is a resource,” said David.
Our work on the Ovingham Level Crossing Removal Project was an opportunity to prove it’s possible.
